Subject: RE: Help: I sowed the seeds of love
I can see why Malcolm doesn't want to do a bibliography on this one. It would take practically forever.

Lets try a few earlier versions. On the Bodley Ballads website put 'seeds' as keyword in for Search in one title/1st line/tune box and 'love' in the other. Next put 'sprig' in the fist box and 'thyme' in the 2nd.

Also see the 17th century version of 'The Gardener's Lad' in the Scarce Songs 1 file on my website.
